Whole Foods Market Recalls Sandwich Cookies Nationwide Due to Possible Undeclared Allergens
Whole Foods Market issued a voluntary recall over the weekend for two of its private label cookies. Their 365 Everyday Value Dark Chocolate Peppermint Sandwich Cremes and 365 Everyday Value Dark Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt Sandwich Cremes for possibly being contaminated with undeclared allergens. Two reactions have been reported to date and those with an allergy or sensitivity to milk or tree nuts (coconut) are advised to not consume these products and run the risk of experiencing a serious reaction if consumed. (Note: Coconut is technically a fruit, even though this recall refers to it as a tree nut, so most people with tree nut allergies are still able to consume coconut.)
